MFS Brewing's Ghost Taproom

When we started Memphis Made Brewing in 2013, part of our mission was to help grow the craft beer scene in our hometown.

We're continuing that idea by hosting MFS Brewing for a ghost taproom at our place until their brewery opens downtown later this year.

They are starting out with four beers Saturday, Feb. 10 but will have various beers on tap throughout their stay.

The first four beers are Left Handed Screwdriver, Re-Spec'd, Happy Little Toolbox, and Workbench IPA.

Left Handed Screwdriver is a honey citrus wheat with oranges, honey, and coriander.

Re-Spec'd is a pecan pie a la mode with coffee pastry stout. It's made with J. Brooks MFS Brewer's Blend coffee.

Happy Little Toolbox is a ginger molasses cookie imperial stout with a blend of cinnamon, allspice berries, and vanilla

Workbench IPA is an approachable IPA with Medusa and El Dorado hops.

 

Come by and try these beers and maybe meet the MFS Brewing team.

On The Road Again

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is hitting the road in 2024, bringing beer and beer-related  knowledge to the people.

First, we'll be spending a couple days in St. Louis, partnering with our friends at International Tap House.

Jan. 23, we'll be at their Soulard location with beer, prizes, and more for their trivia night.

The next night, we're taking the show to their Delmar location. In addition to Fireside and GonerBrau, which are available throughout Missouri, we'll be bringing some special beers just for these events. Both events start around 7:30 p.m.

Next, we're heading east for a beer tasting in Nashville. We'll be at the Total Wine & More in Brentwood on Jan. 26. We'll be on site sampling beers and distributing the Memphis Made merch from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Finally, we'll be back in Missouri on Feb. 10 for a beer festival. We'll be attending the Brews in the Bluff in Poplar Bluff so stop by and meet the people who brew the beer you drink.

If we've missed your town or you have a beer festival or event you'd like us to attend, please reach out at info@memphismadebrewing.com and we'll see if we can add you to the schedule.

 

Liberty Bowl Tailgate at Memphis Made

The University of Memphis is playing its 10th consecutive bowl game, this time less than one mile from our Midtown brewery.

To celebrate the Tigers’ berth into the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, we’re opening early Friday, Dec. 29 to help you prepare for a victory over the visiting Iowa State Cyclones.

We’ll open the taproom at 1 p.m. as part of our Liberty Bowl Tailgate.

Big River Dogs, a new food truck in town, will be making their Memphis Made debut that day.

We’ll also be having a Tiger Watch Party at 2:30 p.m. in case you don’t want to leave your barstool.

If you’re heading to the game at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium, are tailgating at Tiger Lane, or plan on watching it at home, we’ve got you covered as well. 

The taproom will have $9.01 six packs to go all day. The beer will taste especially sweet after a Tigers win.

Make sure to wear your Memphis gear and help us root the Tigers on to victory!

 

Memphis Made Expands into Missouri

Memphis Made Brewing Co. has teamed up with Bommarito Wines & Spirits, a family-owned company based in St. Louis, to distribute our beer across the state of Missouri.

Our initial launch into Missouri includes Fireside Amber Ale and GonerBrau Kviek Pilsner. Fireside, our best-selling beer, is available in kegs and cans while GonerBrau is available in cans.

Starting production at our new facility in downtown Memphis earlier this year has given us the capacity to expand into new markets. Memphis Made is currently distributed across the entire state of Tennessee, North Mississippi, and now Missouri, joining Bommarito’s best-in-class portfolio of wines, spirits, and beer.

We’re excited to be selling beer in a new state, especially one like Missouri with such a rich brewing history. Our brewery focuses on community involvement, so we’re looking forward to participating in beer festivals, tastings, and other events across Missouri.

MALTED Set for Dec. 2

The maltiest day of the year is happening in December.

MALTED will be Saturday, Dec. 2 this year. The festival starts at 1 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m.

We normally have this festival in November but decided to push it back so that you can enjoy malty beers in their natural environment: colder weather.

Our brewers are experimenting with various grains and should have some old favorites and new surprises at this year's festival.

In addition to malty beers, we'll have live music and food trucks. 

Mike Hewlett and the Racket will play from 3 to 4 p.m. and San Salido will hold it down from 5 to 7 p.m.

Memphis AF Burrito will be parked outside at 2 p.m. and CM Eatery will be working the dinner shift.

We also have another great poster designed by Sara Moseley.

This year's poster is a companion piece to the HOPPED poster from April.

Stay tuned to our social media and website for more details on this year's festival.
